Project Combo Guard


Let me start by saying that this group of guys has me excited for now, and the future as well.  Beasley and Love are becoming who we thought they could be, Wes has shown flashes and has a bright future, Darko provides nice interior defense and has recently showed more of an offensive pop, Brewer has found a nice niche with his defense and hustle, etc. etc. etc.  I am looking forward to the return of Flynn and the arrival of Rubio next year.  Our PG situation is bright in my opinion (I even like Sundiata Gaines for kripes sake, dude knows how to penetrate and dish/score, he's just young and raw).   I am also very pumped about Webster and his potential.  It is not out of the question that he could reach his potential much like Beas and Love and be a very good starting 2 guard.  That being said, with all of these pieces, other than Beasley, nobody jumps out at you as far as providing the ability to create his own shot.  Webster would be the next best, and Jonny has some of that as well.  But I believe the squad needs to find a 2 guard or combo guard who has that quality.  Again, ya Beas can do it.   But teams will figure out sooner or later that they need to double him more often.  Having a 2nd guy who can do that would be huge.  Whether that player is a starter or a reserve, comes from a trade or a draft pick, I think we need it to go to the next level.  It doesn't have to be a prototypical shooting guard.  It can be an undersized to if need be.  Not saying he's the guy, but a LaceDarius Dunn type of guy (Baylor) is the kind of guy we could land with a 2nd round pick.  Another guy who fits this description at the college level would be Josh Selby (Kansas).  I'm sure a lot of you guys know of others, maybe you can name a few candidates.  And then there are trade or free agent possilities.  Again, I'm hoping you guys can name a few names here as well.  Thoughts?
